Dispatches from Resistant Mexico is a series of short documentaries from southern Mexico, each depicting one of the thousands of pockets of resistance throughout Latin America that are in struggle against what the Zapatistas call “the capitalist hydra.”
These individuals and communities affirm a way of life in opposition to capitalist economics and values.
They fight the devastating neoliberal “development” and “mega-projects” that loot resources and land from indigenous communities and threaten forms of life that have survived despite 500 years of colonization.
The resistance shares many of the principles and goals of the Zapatistas:
* Autonomy from the capitalist economy;
* Communalist self-government rooted in indigenous collective traditions;
* An end to the subordination of women; and
* A respectful, life-affirming, non-dominating relation to nature. Indigenous women are at the forefront of many of these ongoing struggles.
Dispatches from Resistant Mexico is part of the Chiapas Support Committee's CompArte Zapatista art show at Dream Farm Commons: "Nuestra lucha es por la vida | Our Struggle is for Life." Check out the Zapatista art show here: https://www.dreamfarmcommons.com/nuestra-lucha-es-por-la-vida
Please wear a face mask & practice social distancing.
FILMS & DISCUSSION
The film screening will be followed by discussion with the filmmakers and other CSC members, including an update on the current situation in Chiapas and an invitation to take action with the CSC on December 22nd in San Francisco.
The screening is outdoors and we recommend coming ready for chilly weather. We will have some seating available and, if you can, bring a chair and a blanket.
We will have coffee, refreshments and tamales; requesting a donation and no one turned away for lack of funds. C/S
